    Hi!
    -Motherboard Manufacturer and Model : Lenovo 300S-11IBR Desktop (ideacentre) MT:90DQ006TCF
    -Bios Revision : O1FKT59A
    -Bios Type : EFI / Insyde
    -Bios SLIC : LENOVOTC-9H
    -Bios Link :

    Using Phoenix Tool 2.6.6, I can confirm that there is a SLIC 2.1 in the BIOS:
    Code:
    EFI / Insyde BIOS
    SLIC header found in 7E374E25-8E01-4FEE-87F2-390C23C606CD_962.ROM at 0

    OEM/Table IDs identified are:
    1. INSYDEH2O BIOS
    2. LENOVOTC-9H   
    Header (INSYDEH2O BIOS    ACPI) (x1)
    Pubkey (x1)
    Marker (2.1) (LENOVOTC-9H   ) (x1)
    
    How do I enable the hidden SLIC? I searched and read and I'm in information overload now. I will try

    and the asset trick from

    but can I lose my Windows 10 license?

    I do have Windows 10 installed from factory and I multiboot Windows 7 Pro. I wish to enable the SLIC so I can use OEM activation if possible. Else, I'll have to call M$ to activate my "Upgrade" license on it :-(


    Thanks!

    I've already checked.
    The way Phoenix Tool 2.6.6 shows the Pubkey, it looks like the field is just empty. So, the SLIC section is in the BIOS, but I think it's incomplete. I'll ask in the Insyde BIOS Mod requests section. I searched to my best and I did not see my BIOS there nor in the Lenovo section.

    That brings this question: Should it be asked in the Lenovo or Insyde section? ;)
